This was Iowa Remembers, Inc.’s fifth year of honoring Iowa’s fallen service members. Our events were held the last weekend of September, which is Gold Star Mother’s weekend. This year’s events included the Annual Retreat (a private event), the 5th Annual Remembrance Run (5K Walk/Run) and An Evening with Marcus Luttrell – Lone Survivor: A Tribute to Courage, Honor and Patriotism.
Proceeds from the Remembrance Run fund the Annual Retreat for Iowa Families of Fallen Service Members. The retreat is a private event for family members in Iowa who have lost a service member. The meeting provides the families with useful resources and support, and facilitates a peer network for the participants. The retreat is held the same weekend as the Remembrance Run.
